Oh man, what a ride!
These were the first words that came to my mind, when I finished reading Dr No today. Once again Ian Fleming does a fantastic job with this story, where he combines class and adventure in an inteligent way.
One thing that I liked the most in the story, was Bond's loyalty to his gun, of many years, the .25 Beretta. We see his sadness for having to quit using it, and the doubts he has about the new piece, Walter PPK. I was hoping to read some lines with the character Felix Leiter included, but no luck there. Dr Julius No is one of the most lunatic villains, where during the dinner chapter, we get the sense that he's a maniac saddist. The sensuality and innocence of Honey Rider, adds more to the story and makes her one of the most interesting "Bond girls" in the series.

I must admit that having watched the film twice during my read of Dr. No, really hurt my take on the film. Not to discredit the film by any means, but as one can come to expect things are much different in the literary versions.
